Jamie never fails to make me happy. He always has a smile on his face, no matter what. Jamie has suffered in many ways himself. Nothing I am going to blog about of course, but he has had his fare share of unhappiness. I haven't known him well for too long, but we have grown closer over the last few months. I told him if things get too rough, he should run for the hills, but he has said he wants to be here for us. That means a lot. Jamie can be himself around us and we don't but an eye lid. He always tends to enjoy life, no matter what is thrown his way. Everyone has a lot to learn from that.
Kirsty is close to giving birth now. She has a couple of weeks to go. Known my luck, she'll have the baby in my house. Bring it on I say, why not. Just another event to add to my ever growing list of stuff that has happened over the last year. I know more about babies since meeting Kirsty and although it is all alien to me, I have listened for the main part. I have also been a bitch at times, fed up with hearing about the trials and tribulations of birth, but in all honesty, it keeps my mind off pressing matters.
I have grown to love Kirsty, for all her faults. She has a heart of gold and does everything for the best reasons, even if they don't always seem that way. In a way Kirsty is very much like Jamie's handbag. He and she could not live without one another and no matter how much they fight, they do love each other as friends really.
Discussing the future is hard right now, for all of us. Kirsty has a vision of what to expect, but with myself and Jason having so much instability, we can't quite see through the muddle and confusion ourselves. It is good to see Kirsty planning a future and even nicer to see that she has a future, beyond what she and others see right now. It is about staying positive at difficult times. Both Jamie and Kirsty have been here for us, during this insane time and it is because of people like them, that we cope better than many expect. You ask how we cope at this time Kirsty, well, we have to, just have to cope, because the alternative is unthinkable.
We may not be here at Capri for ever. As time moves on, the time spent in this house becomes less and less, but Capri holds some fantastic memories for Jason and I and those memories will be difficult to forget.
Two people who have played an important part in my well being over this period of turmoil and without them, things may well be very different.
Tonight I heard Jason laugh, for the first time in weeks. That is because of the company with us right now. Not a day goes by, without the laughter of friendship. That has kept my head above the tide of drowning. That is worth all the money in the Word!
Love to Jamie and Kirsty!
